Today we celebrate the birthdate of Daniel Webster, born in 1782 in New Hampshire. One of the great oraters of his time, Webster was a member of the House of Representatives (representing both New Hampshire and Massachusetts in his career), a Senator and Secretary of State to three presidents. In his honor we raise the New Hampshire and Massachusetts flags today.
